Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced the repealing of the three Central farm laws.

Farmers have been protesting against the government’s three farm laws since they were passed by the Centre in 2020, namely The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act.

However, following Prime Minister Modi’s announcement repealing three farm laws, BKU leader Rakesh Tikait on Friday said the farmers’ agitation has not ended.

Tikait said that issues like cases against farmers, electricity bills, MSP guarantee need to be resolved before the conclusion of the agitation.
